Claudia is an excellent guide--great familiarity with the city, extensive knowledge, behind-the-scene stories, knowledge of lots of people in Cartagena.
Our guide was friendly but he basically walked us around the town and provided very little history, context or insights unless we asked. At several points there were free tours going on and their guides were doing a much better job explaining the history of Cartagena and the relevance of each stop. He has decent information and perspective when you asked him, but as a history and context provider he was disappointing.
Loved the tour. One of the best with Context. Shared history, contemporary culture, food, art. Great food stops. Tried to accommodate our needs and interests.
